(b) The Power factor at the resonance is unity.
(c)Current is minimum at Resonance in series R-L-C circuit.

(d)All of the above

Sol. The major components of a hydroelectric plant are as follows.
Spillway is used to discharge excess water from dam.
An economiser is a mechanical device which is used as a heat exchanger by preheating a fluid to reduce energy consumption. i.e., it is used to heat feed water. It is a part of thermal power plant.
Sol. Surge chamber is a part of hydro-electric power plant. Surge tank is a water storage device used as pressure neutralizer in hydropower water conveyance system to resists excess pressure rise and pressure drop conditions.
Sol. If the switch were in the neutral line, the appliance would still get electricity when the switch is turned off. By switching the live wire, we make sure that no electricity flows in the appliance when it is switched off. Otherwise, we may get a shock while working on it with the switch off.
Sol. According to the IS code, the colour of earth wire is usually Green.
Sol. For Half-wave rectifier: i_rms=i_m/2=10/2=5 A
Sol. As we know, L α N^2
Added number of turns=2582-2000=582.
Sol. In a series RLC circuit, at resonance the voltage drops across the capacitance and
inductance is equal in magnitude. But in Phase Opposition so the impedance will be
minimum at resonance hence the current at the resonance is maximum. & the Power Factor at Resonance is Unity.
Sol. Guard ring serves following purposes:
A. Equalization of voltage drop across the units
B. Protect the insulator strings from the flashover whenever over-voltage occurs between
the tower structure and the power conductor.
C. Due to this string efficiency increases.
Sol. 2-point starter is enough to start the dc series motor. Since armature and field winding are in series. No requirement of 3- or 4-point starter.
Sol. The power diodes are similar to p-n junction or low power diodes but have large power, voltage and current handling capabilities than those of conventional p-n junction diodes. It has two terminal and three layers. It finds many applications in electronics and electrical engineering circuits.
